Diet Coke Rocket!

We had done the whole Mentos and Diet Coke experiment in a co-op class a few years back so I wanted something a little different. A quick search led me to this video and I knew that I had found the experiment for us. All you need is a two liter of Diet Coke and a pack of the original Mentos.


1.Take off the outer wrapper of the Mentos


2. Drop the Mentos into the Diet Coke and quickly screw on the cap.


3. Shake the Diet Coke. 4. Open the cap just a little until it starts to fizz. 5. Throw the Diet Coke bottle on the ground and it will take off.

Warning! Don’t stand close to the bottle. Our bottle exploded mid flight showering my husband with Diet Coke. Of course, the loving family we are only laughed a little!
